Welcome to Advent !         Sunday services at 8:00 & 9:30am
Advent is Christ’s church. We proclaim Christ as Lord and Savior and believe that salvation is a gift from God. His amazing grace and steadfast love surround us.      In the waters of baptism we are claimed by God and marked with the cross of Christ forever. You too are called to live in this relationship and to know Jesus.
 
Church provides a place of refuge from the challenges of everyday life. We experience the presence of the Holy Spirit working among us, and church is a place to share with fellow believers. Jesus has promised an abundant life for those who choose to follow Him in    this journey.  So come and join us! 
The Season of Epiphany
begins with the arrival of the three Magi from the east who followed the star to Bethlehem to worship Jesus. They brought gifts of gold, incense, and myrrh. The word Epiphany means appearing, manifestation, or revealing. The imagery of light declares that Jesus Christ is the Light of the World. God has been revealed to the world through the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Other key events are the baptism of Jesus by John in the Jordan River, the presentation of Jesus at the temple in Jerusalem, the wedding of Cana where Jesus turns water into wine, and the Transfiguration where Jesus is revealed as the Son of God. Epiphany follows Christmas and lasts until Ash Wednesday.
